Heather Christensen

Heather is the Office Manager at the University of Queensland, which is the administering organisation for the Environmental Decisons Hub. This means she has to wrangle information into submission for not only UQ but often for all the nodes, to help Dr Alvin van Niekerk. She does this whilst answering a thousand questions (all different to those Melisa deals with) and remaining cheerful and sane. Luckily she too is good at her job!

Matthew Watts

Matt is the super-nerdy powerhouse behind Marxan.  Although Marxan was originally designed by Dr Ian Ball & Prof. Hugh Possingham, Matt has been working on improvements and modifications for the last 6 years, so knows it inside-out.

The Marxan software is the most widely used software in conservation planning around the world. It  provides decision support for the design of reserve systems, so keeping it up-to-date to meet continually changing conservation decision science requirments is a super important task that Matt loves!
